There were corals but not much--there's not much to see. Although we enjoyed swimming and skin diving because we liked the temperature of the water and there were not too many boats in the area

The place was great for snorkelling, there are a lot of life under the sea. The reefs are still intact, colourful and full off life. There are no big waves so you can enjoy snorkelling peacefully. Unfortunately there are jellyfish that make us stop our...More

The wall is breathtakingly beautiful. Despite the vis (I was here in May 2017), the micro lives were amazing. I highly recommend diving here with wet suits, this site has a lot of jellyfish and I'm not even joking I was stung almost everyday diving...More

I love snorkeling. This area has a lot of reefs. It doesn't have many kinds of fish, but still stunning! We went on a boat there and we saw some dolphins! They were pretty far, but still. I loved visiting Pescador Island!

It's paradise.. DO NOT MISS. The coral, marine life is so vivid and colorful that it can easily be labelled as the best in the Philippines baring Bohol. A must do for any diver

We went here for snorkeling, but we get disappointed, the stream is strong and you don't can see a lot of fish or so. For diving I hear is is a amazing place, the best Start at 35m down. On the way to the island...More

Nice place for drift diving. Currents can be strong. Lots to see along the wall. Includes Spanish Dancer

Dive shops dive here for some of the better diving, it is about a 15 min boat trip can get crowded with fishermen and many divers. Diving in Moalboal is overrated. Better places in the Philippines to dive.

Hi, it does sound a lot but you are doing 3 tours, we asked around Moalboal for prices and bartered hard for our trips, they will come down with prices, try it. Good luck.
Hello! I hope I can get the answer from here. I am planning a trip in May to Cebu and wanted to go somewhere nearby to chill and snorkel, though don't know how to swim. What is the safest and easiest way to go here from Cebu City? I look forward to your reply soon. Thank you very much.

I`d like to ask how much do we pay for the banca for the trip to pescador island and back.

Response from edward r | Reviewed this property |
Depending on who you hire, you can rent a banca for anywhere from 1000 pesos to 3500 pesos. Some of the diving clubs in Panagsama beach can let you hitch a ride for about 500 pesos if they are diving in Pescador that day.
